Preparations are also underway for our annual Apple Festival to be held on Sunday, Oct. 7 from 2 - 4 p.m. at Monument Square; this is another collaborative effort with the Hollis Town Band. Apple crisp desserts and pies will be served as customers are entertained with musical favorites, old and new!
